Mississippi Judge Suspends All Executions

On Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Henry Wingate ordered all executions to temporarily halt, calling lethal injection a cruel and unusual method. Wingate is expected to give a more thorough explanation behind the decision in the next few days.

The suspension was made at the request of two death row inmates who argued that lethal injection by pentobarbital or midazolam was “chemical torture.”
